    I find myself really liking this card even though I am still uncertain I want to like it. If I already have a Death Baron on the field then I win, presumably. In all other cases I am hellbent, you are hellbent, *everyone* is hellbent.

    Raiders' Wake?


    We do have a few creatures that return themselves from the yard..

    seems odd...I guess it could be cute in a Jund Deck with the Riot card to create an army of 2/2 hasty zombies.


    But Rhythm of the Wild gives riot to nontoken creatures only...


    Forgot about that part... whelp. I got nothin... outside of Commander where you have cards like Waste Not, any of the Racks, and Liliana's Caress

    idk. with Essence Capture, could make for a decent tempo creature.

    Benthic Biomancer could make for a Delver substitute as well. Lacks evasion but has a cheap adapt cost, and gives us craw. when combined with Essence Capture, we can potentially draw quite a few cards off him.

    Huh... this could be an interesting card for future "not delver"... lacks evasion but gives you card draw.

    NotSnapcaster not being a creature definitely makes it less good in the Delver deck than Snapcaster was. You might be better off playing Dire-Fleet Daredevil instead.

    We're also notably missing a good alternative to Ponder as well as a good replacement for Geist of Saint Traft.

    Personally, I don't see it, at least in Standard.


    not having a body may actually be a boon for the Drake as it helps make the little guy stronger quicker since it increases your Instant/Sorcery count.

    Ponder wouldnt be as useful (out side of the card draw) as it was mostly used to help set up Delvers flip requirement (which is not as much of an issue here since we dont have that hoop to jump through to power up). As for card draw itself though, going Jeskai may help us with that. Not having Geist is rough, but that is what a play set of Warrant/Warden could be used for. Early game use it as a tempo card, and late game use mission briefing/anotehr copy and cast it as a 4/4 flying vigi creature.

    So with the spoiled cards right now, it looks like we may just end up seeing the Rise of "delver" style tempo with similair but not cards. I mean, we have :
    Not Delver
    Not Snapcaster
    Not Mana Leak
    Not Azorius Charm
    And a card to give us more tempo.

    We have a facsimile of a delver shell right now...

    What do you all think? is it enough to make delver rise from the grave to haunt Ravnica again?

    in Jeskai spellslinger/Tempo this card is going to be dumb... pitching a spell is nothing when you have jump-start...

    hmm... maybe Jeskai "Not Delver" XD

    So.. with the new Azorius Split card, this card may be able to fill the role of "Not Delver" in a UWx tempo deck.

    We have "Not Snapcaster"
    We have "Not Mana Leak"
    We have "Not Azorius Charm"
    We have another 2 mana counter to stop cretures and make this dude even bigger....

    man... UW "Not Delver" may make a return...

    EDIT: Oh and we have a "not Supreme Verdict" in BW... so Esper Tempo....

    So this card got spicier with the addition of the Azorius rare split card.... makes UWx tempo even more viable. especially with the 1 mana drake that cna easily bcome a 5/5 for 1 more.

    She is.... so bad in standard... she literally stops you from playing the best gruul cards right now...

    Back half is pretty good with the riot enchantment. With that out this is either removal, a 4/4 trample haste, or a 5/5. Seems serviceable. This would have been nuts if the back half had haste imho. Being able to hold up mana and flash in a 4/4 trample during opponents eot when you can untap for combat tricks seems like too much for current standard.

    The more gruul cards I see the less I like nikya. She seems like a checkbox card for ruric thar commander players that wanted something slightly different at the helm. She has crap for synergy with a hefty chunk of the guild.


    She literally stops you from playing the best cards in Gruul hahaha xD.

    Removing one mana cards and graveyards alike makes this for a good SB option in Eternal formats. Her fringeness mostly has to do with her being multicolored, which limits what decks can play her.


    Um.. no... she is HORRID for eternal because she is just too slow... she can remove.. what. 1 thing a turn? Affinity can play around that easy.

    Or she can remove 2 cards? The only deck that cares about that is Reanimator.. and they can play around that by using Entomb and Reanimate on the same turn and punish you for playing a do nothing PW with RusselBrand
